Heavy Scandinavian humor

por Delila Volz (2021-04-07)

For the query'Scandinavian humor'Yandex, such as, gives you only 4 absolutely matching links. One of them is done nonsense, the second results in a review of Erlend Lou's literary creation, which really has quite adequate humor - Volvo Trucks, the third - to your entry in LiveJournal while using the wording'heavyweight Scandinavian humor ', the 4th to the certain forum to the topic'Norman theory and Scandinavian humor ', and I didnt see anything about humor directly. The photo is symptomatic, right?

In a nutshell, in the event the descendants with the Vikings have humor, it is quite peculiar. Not necessarily the Russian folk "three ha-ha" without including the idiotic Bin from Foggy Albion, very understandable and nearby the Russian soul.

Here, we have to keep in mind the fact that the characters will humor in'The Most Important Boss'on the suggestion and below the strict guidance on the well-known many-something-fob Lars Trier, the carrier of the proudly attached prefix'von ', which in itself is funny if have proper picture of ​​some facts in regards to the director's biography with his fantastic previous film works.

However, Trier, famous for his unbridled film innovation, having filmed films coming from all imaginable and inconceivable genres, beginning with mystical legends in hospital interiors, ending with social drama against the backdrop of the black backdrop, complacently and naturally transferred his efforts to your comedy genre, as a common virgin soil, hitherto remaining unplowed. However, many viewers, exploring the "fresh" Trier, will understand they've already no sensation of humor. Or even the Dane doesn't always have it. "And that is more likely," we say to them in consolation.

The plot is easy: the director of an certain mid-range IT company hires an unemployed actor to effectively and convincingly portray the "most vital boss" in nature, who does not take place in nature, who is here towards the Danish kingdom to check his own family based business, for an average fee. Everything.

60 minutes and forty minutes of screen time "the key boss" gets to funny troubles of the boltological nature, getting into conflicts and approximately close relations with the workplace employees (6 "old people" with respect for gender balance), using an ex-girlfriend, through an Icelander, with a company ... 4 times this author himself intervenes while in the events, 123movies using the confident voice on the creator "exposing" the comedy for the viewer, voicing and illustrating the laws of the genre's existence.

Usually, the humor in "The Most Important Boss" really should be WANTED to see. I desired to, and that it was funny to me. Not constantly, she didn't tear her tummies, but you will discover sufficient truly funny situations. And the overall atmosphere of the initial absurdity is rather successfully supported by the photo, whose originality is born, apparently, to the particular Automavision, invented by Trier, because no living and healthy operator would dare to shoot like that. Quite often in the midst of the frame you will find there's doorway, then a computer monitor, then only half on the character's face, uttering remarks. Feeling that your camera lives its very own life, in spite of the characters. And this is also funny.

To state that the picture is minimalistic is to say nothing! In "Boss" we have seen a type of hi-tech through the cinema: white smooth walls, office furniture - completely straight lines and standard colors, equipment for your office, judging through the disposition while in the frame, playing the title role, faces and figures of characters.

It is evident by purchasing this kind of ascetic plot and scenery, the audience's interest automatically shifts on the characters from the film and what they assert (to a reduced extent, what they are doing). To "keep" a persons vision and attention of the public, you must PLAY! Plus they are playing.

One cannot but praise, needless to say, Jens Albinus, whose surprisingly stupid and touching face, "The primary boss" owes a very big amount of his success. The roles of losers and bungler look really good in the performance of just such guys, causing sympathy and slight annoyance at the same time.

A unique fact could be the presence inside the casting of your director of your heavyweight, affectionately accepted right at that moment "Angels on the Universe", the Icelander Fridrik Thor Fridriksson inside role of an organization partner, as well as a potential buyer of this complete office, completely indefatigable and uncontrollable, damn HOT (huh) and extremely undiplomatic Icelandic uncle Finnur. The role is small, but very striking.

Of the ladies, perhaps, I would like to praise the "real blonde" Iben Yail, who's going to be still remembered by me for that role of your hysterical Scandinavian girlfriend in the character John Cusack in Stephen Frears'"High Fidelity", and a good game in "Dogme-95" No. 3 - "Mifune's Last Song" ... Excellent madama. P-ara could be where she required to - might have settled in Hollywood with scores of royalties.

As opposed to conclusions.

The film is funny and original, and not devoid of a great level of boredom. Over a comedy, pure water seriously isn't drawn, but quite watchable, if not at 2 am. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone and everybody, but fans of Trier's antics will, I believe, be satisfied. As, however, and connoisseurs of oh-oh-very subtle, barely noticeable humor. Anyone who would like to fuss to see how cinematic geniuses undertake it - you are welcome! That way.
